OpenTTD 1.4.0, a free clone of the Transport Tycoon Deluxe game, has seen a new release yesterday, on April 1, 2014, and bundles hundreds of fixes and new features over the older version.


The game comes with many features, among which:

  • tries to clone the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe as close as possible
  • multiplayer mode up to 255 players in 15 companies
  • in-game downloading of scenarios and maps
  • mammoth and multi-headed trains
